Does anyone have any remedies for congestion??? My son is 13 months and has been congested for about a month. I read that maybe milk allergies could be doing this.

My mother always said not to give a congested baby milk.  Something about the mucus glands and milk...  Is he drinking whole milk yet?
My kids get sick in the fall alot so I steam up the bathroom and sit for 5-10 minutes to get the flow going and then I give them some saline drops and keep my electronic nasal aspirator nearby.

I have a Vicks vaporizer but what REALLY helps is Euclapytus oil.
Put a drop on his shirt and it's amazing how that clears their breathing passages. It even clears me up lying next to my son in the bed.
 
Warning: after a few hours it doesn't smell so good and you will have to change his shirt.
